Two glucose molecules underwent glycolysis, only one was oxidized. Determine the amount of ATP molecules formed and carbon dioxide molecules released during this.
To solve, we use the equations of stage 2 (glycolysis) and stage 3 (oxygen) energy exchange.
During the glycolysis of one glucose molecule, 2 ATP molecules are formed, and during the oxidation of 36 ATP. According to the condition of the problem, 2 glucose molecules underwent glycolysis: 2 ∙ 2 = 4, and only one was oxidized. 4 + 36 = 40 ATP.
Carbon dioxide is formed only at the 3rd stage, with the complete oxidation of one glucose molecule, 6 CO2 is formed
Answer: 40 ATP; CO2.- 6
